Books sorted by Number within Series - is it possible?

I'm trying to find a way to sort books by respective Number within given Series on my Kindle 4. Yet I think this problem is not related to the brand or model of a reader. One can sort books by Title but is there a way to sort books by number?

I don't have a Kindle, but simple metadata plugboards might help you out.

I was wondering if there was a way to have no numbering on a series,
Some books are part of a series, but don't have a read order.
But I always have to have [0] etc after the series name...

If it is a (Calibre declared) series, it has to have an Index Number.

It can be 0 or any other floating point number.

I use 0 for Index and readers guides.
I use 0.01-0.99 for stories not in the read order
I use n.nn for (short)stories in between the normal read order

Just my OCD kicking in, Really want to Declare it as a series, but it irks me to have to have a number.

Thought I'd ask to be sure

I assume the "have to have" refers to the GUI? It is easy not to have the numbers when using templates (save to disk, send to device, plugboards, etc).
